Come out & Play Field Day 2013

Can you tell me what sounds better than a day spent playing games and getting to know some great people? I know, right? I couldn't think of anything either! So now that we've established that there isn't possibly anything else you'd rather do, come out with us and enjoy this portion of the Come Out & Play Festival.

Come Out & Play is an annual festival of street games that turns New York City into a giant playground. In 2013 Come Out & Play returns to Lower Manhattan in partnership with the River to River Festival.

This year's festival features two events: Come Out & Play After Dark (an event also conveniently listed on our calendar) an evening of night games on Friday July 12 and Come Out & Play Field Day(the event listed here), a day of exciting new field games on Saturday July 13.

Come Out & Play Field Day features a range of new games from open field dodgeball battles to small social games to new sports. Some games make use of new technology like smart phones and some rely on old fashioned tech like rubber balls. But each offers new ways to play and have fun.

This year Come Out & Play includes Family Day, a mini-festival of games for the whole family, organized by ESI Design, one of the world’s foremost experience design firms. All of the games will connect together in a single fun storyline about Time Travel — complete with an official Time Travel Agency, games throughout time, chronological paradoxes, and imminent threats to the space-time continuum! You’ll be able to play just one or two games as you like, or all of them for an epic Time Travel adventure.

Just imagine what it would be like to travel back to the Dark Ages or ahead to the distant future, when robots rule the world. Anything is possible at the Time Travel Agency, even playing a game with your own great, great, great, great grandparent! (If I meet my either of my great, great, great, great grandparents I'm giving them stock tips)

If you want to check out the line up of games and learn a little about each one, click here for the general field day, and here for the family field day (some games are listed both places).

 

Family Day games are suitable for everyone, especially ages 6 to 11. Guardians must co-sign waivers for any player under 18 years of age.

    Looks like the storm is clearing out. I'm still planning to go check it out, and I'm on my way to South Ferry

    It's a such a pity the weather is so terrible. I was really looking forward to this.

    I'm on the fence! Is anyone else willing to brave the storm for this?

    Hey everyone, I just sent an email out explaining that I've canceled the event and why. I'm not going to cancel the event page, though, in case any of you want to coordinate amongst yourselves and head out to participate without me. If that's what you'd like to do, I encourage you to do so. If you need any help toward that end, let me know and I'll do what I can.

    Does anyone know if this is a kid friendly event for even a 2 year old?

    July 10, 2013

    • Shawn

      On the website, it says games are suitable foe everyone, especially 6-11 year olds. That's pretty ambiguous wording, so I'll look into it for you.

      July 10, 2013

    • Shawn

      That was for the family day games, specifically, by the way

    Is this really at 12 a.m.?

    July 9, 2013

    • Shawn

      No, it's 12pm. That's what happens when you schedule meetups at 2am. Thanks for pointing it out- I've changed it, now.
